I've been with the series since 1996, playing all of the canon title in release order (except for the GC exclusive titles). As a veteran fan, I see all this as a much needed evolution and very relevant to my interests.
Not all veterans of the series feel 'alienated'.
I couldn't have said it any better. I felt 5 was a real let down but I never felt alienated, 4 was a masterpiece of huge proportions, despite being a fan since 1997.

From: Spade59 | #022 All of these titles are morphing into the same game, losing their individuality.
That's pure exaggeration.
Just because a bunch of games adopt similar mechanics does not make it 100% the same and there will always be enough traits to keep them apart.
Metal Gear Solid 4, Silent Hill: Homecoming & Dead Space uses the same dual-analog shooting mechanic but there's still a lot that sets these games apart.
Since Resident Evil 6 involves monsters, I'm pretty sure there will be some unique strategies required to combat them, like how they came up with using Flash Grenades to destroy parasites or luring a monster into an incinerator. Do you do this in Call Of Duty? Of course not. Resident Evil 6 will still have a lot to set it apart from other shooters.
There is no such thing as a "Quick Time Event done right". A game that has Quick Time Events is a "video game done wrong".
